ERC spokeswoman Marta Vilalta warned this Saturday “to the right, the extreme right and the most retrograde sectors of the ’78 regime“that they will persist in self-determination and amnesty no matter how much they manifest” in Barcelona and Madrid.
“They can demonstrate, they can collect signatures, they can shout a lot, but we will continue to persist that the solution is self-determination“, he stated in statements to the press at the Jardinets de Gràcia in Barcelona.
Vilalta’s statements arrive when there are just a few hours left for the PP, Vox and Ciudadanos arrive at the Plaza de Colón to demonstrate against the pardons to the independence leaders studied by the Ministry of Justice, and after Cs met yesterday in Barcelona around 200 people in another concentration of the same sign.
Vilalta has pointed out that the right “is once again putting Catalonia in the spotlight” and that it reiterates its mistake “of collecting signatures against pardons, against what the citizens of Catalonia want.” And he has asserted that there is “a very broad consensus” in Catalonia in favor of working “for a democratic solution”, which would have the support of “three out of every four Catalans”, a figure that comes from the last CEO, according to Vilalta.
Regarding the pardons, he has pointed out that “if they have to be done, let them be done and stop talking“, although he has insisted that they will not be” the substantive solution to a conflict that has been taken to the repressive route. “
Although she has insisted that the solution is through self-determination and amnesty, the Republican spokeswoman has stated that “eThe process of dialogue and negotiation is good in itself“because” it reveals the contradictions of the Spanish Government “and because it gives the independence movement” legitimacy “both internally and internationally.
